#109 Stained

“Would you mind if we took a look around?” he asked suddenly getting up from the sofa.

“I swear! Nobody’s here.”

The two policemen paid her no attention as they walked though the house.

They found him crouching behind the coats. He didn’t put up much of a fight. Tears streamed down her face as they snapped handcuffs on both of them.

“You should use coasters on glass tables” one said as he pushed her into the car.

In the otherwise spotless house it had been the rings left behind by the two cups of coffee that had betrayed her.

  1. Nice… you should be writing for CSI!

  2. great story but…
    will the coffee stains evidence stand up in court. Or will the jury look upon it with dis-stain?


  3. wait, so the cops arrested them cos they didn’t use coasters? sounds like something my neat-freak aunt would love to do! what kind of funky dystopia is this? 🙂

  4. I’d have had a closer look at their warrant.

  5. Ms. Optimist,

    Where are you? I miss you. Are you okay?
